Dr. Sahin, of Harmony's research department has announced a new book focused on Harmony's approach to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education, is now available for purchase. The book is titled STEM Students on the Stage (SOS).

The STEM S.O.S. model is a rigorous interdisciplinary STEM teaching approach that is teacher facilitated, student-centered and directed through sequenced set of student projects. In contrast to the other PBL models in the market, this model is standards-focused and substantial part of PBL completion takes place out of classroom in a digital environment. The book provides insight into Harmony's practices. It also shares data with the education community on how this approach has impacted students.

2015 COLLEGE ACCEPTANCE DAY PEP RALLY



The Harmony Public Schools San Antonio District will bring together more than 1,500 middle and high school students from its 4 campuses across the Greater San Antonio, Laredo, and Brownsville. This event is comprised of Marching Bands, Mascots, Teacher Cheerleaders, and coaches who will lead the students in college theme songs. Many of Harmony's Seniors will announce what colleges or universities they have been accepted and will be attending. The reason for this 2015 College Acceptance Day Pep Rally is to encourage our middle school students and get them thinking about the importance of attending a great College or University and working towards a degree. We would like to introduce our students to the many scholarships that colleges and universities offer. Our Middle School students will get an opportunity to eat lunch and take a tour of the Beautiful St.Mary's campus in San Antonio TX. This will allow our students to experience University life before the Pep Rally begins.
Only Parents of Graduating Seniors may RSVP to attend the Event.

Harmony-SA Artists at the "BLUE STAR CONTEMPORARY ART MUSEUM"


Harmony Science Academy Art Teacher Ms. Alexander organized a portfolio review with two of our art students and Alex Rubio, Artist-In-Residence of the Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum's MOSAIC program. Impressed with their work, Alex has asked the two boys to join this intensive and rigorous, year-round art program. They met on Monday afternoon and began working in the studio on Tuesday. They are working on art for an upcoming show in March and will have the opportunity to learn the business of art, use multiple medias, participate in community service art projects, build an extensive art portfolio and much, much more! This program is only offered, free of charge, to a maximum of 15 local San Antonio High School students who are extremely dedicated to their art.

Honorary Page Program at our State Capitol

On February 11, 2015 Harmony's 9th Grader M. Ayala was selected to be in the Honorary Program in which he served a half day shift during a legislative session. He granted this oppurtunity by his district Representative Justin Rodriguez shown in the picture with him. When in the Honorary Page Program students have responsibilities and tasks that are requested by the Senators , Representatives and the organizations that have hearings in the Capitol chambers. Mr. Ayala feels his experience in the capitol has given him a better understanding of the daily functions of the capitol and familiar with the rooms in the Capitol.

The school-parent compact is a written agreement between teachers and parents. It is a document
that clarifies what families and schools can do to help children reach high academic standards.
Every school receiving Title I funds must develop a compact. The compact serves as a clear
reminder of everybody's responsibility to take action at school and at home so that children can learn
what is required of them. It is a written commitment indicating how all members of a school
community -- parents, teachers, principals, students, and concerned community members -- agree to
share responsibility for student learning. read more . . .


IMPORTANT MATH PROGRAM INFORMATION

WHAT IS ALEKS??
Assessment and LEarning in Knowledge Spaces is a Web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system. ALEKS uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly what a student knows and doesn't know in a course. ALEKS then instructs the student on the topics she is most ready to learn. As a student works through a course, ALEKS periodically reassesses the student to ensure that topics learned are also retained. ALEKS courses are very complete in their topic coverage and ALEKS avoids multiple-choice questions. A student who shows a high level of mastery of an ALEKS course will be successful in the actual course she is taking.

ALEKS also provides the advantages of one-on-one instruction, 24/7, from virtually any Web-based computer for a fraction of the cost of a human tutor.
